Day 23 – 19 July 2017

Today as we pulled out of the compound and headed to the village, and I couldn’t help but count the “lasts”. The last time we’d go around the round-about, last time we’d drive through Bugembe, last time down the hill into the village…all the “lasts” for this trip. I...

Day 22 – 18 July 2017

Our time is growing short, and the dreaded day is way too close and even though I try not to think about it, I can’t help but get sad knowing the “see you laters” are coming soon. But still we press on, and we headed back to Musima to continue our home visits, and...

Day 21 – 17 July 2017

Today we headed back to Musima to continue our home visits, but first…we paint. The painting of our building had been delayed due to the burial last week but the guys were busy painting today so I jumped in and started helping. My brother Pande was painting also and...

Days 19 and 20 – 15-16 July 2017

For the first few trips to Uganda, we would work in the field every day, and not take a break. Then a friend of ours sat us down and told us that we needed to take breaks when we are here. To have “days off” to spend time with friends, see the country, relax and...

Day 18 – 14 July 2017

Today when we arrived at the village, there were still many people around. The family of the man who passed away. They stay together for a few days to help each other. I looked around, people were cooking, talking and spending time together. I love the way they live...

Day 17 – 13 July 2017

When I first started working in Uganda, someone told me “the highs are high, and the lows are low” and that couldn’t be truer. Today was an emotional roller coaster of a day, and definitely one of the lows. Forgive me if this post rambles, or isn’t my usual, I am...

Day 16 – 12 July 2017

I woke up this morning knowing it was going to be a good day. We had 800kg of posho, 480kg of beans, 320kg of salt, 160 bricks of soap and 160 basins piled up in the compound. What is all that for you ask? It is for our big surprise! We are packing 160 blessing...

Day 15 – 11 July 2017

Today was day 2 of home visits…it was an easy day, we only walked 3.8 miles and saw 35 children.  The view walking around the village will never get old, people think Uganda is dry and a desert but it's so green, lush and beautiful. No hills today…just lots of...

Day 14 – 10 July 2017

Today we headed back to the village and started our home visits. It's really important to me to visit every home of our sponsored kids. I like being able to come back and tell a sponsor exactly what is going on with their child, to be able to tell them the status of...

Day 13 – 9 July 2017

Today was a day off from “working” kind of crazy to even call it work because it's not at all, it's just loving and serving. After a late night of movie watching and UNO playing, we all slept in a little but waking up to my boys saying “wake up mama” put an immediate...

Are You ONE?

When ONE person decides to make a difference. When ONE person opens their eyes and heart to those in need. When ONE person stands strong against the tide of people telling them what they are doing is wrong. When ONE person gives their money...time...their gifts...their talents. When ONE meets another ONE and another and another the ONE becomes many, and the world changes!

Are you ONE?
